Thanks for Carnivale help | Letter

Many thanks to all who supported the Orcas Montessori School Carnivale on May 4. We had record attendance at this year’s Brazilian-themed event. Many friends and businesses contributed to the event’s success, along with the parents and board. Their generosity makes it possible for OMS to continue work on our building expansion and keeps tuition affordable so we can offer the Montessori creative learning experience to the children of Orcas year after year.

Thank you to Jami Mitchell, Mark Padbury, Gene Nery, Lulu Storm, Jon Chappelle, Carrie Ching, Teresa Chocano, Arthur de Haan, Elizabeth Guerry, Krista Hance, Sara Lucia, Jeanne Morris, Laine Pechacek, Victoria Shaner, Maggie Vinson, Georgette Wong, Emily Youngren,
